7 Generations

Communities in rural Alaska are faced with many unique and complex environmental issues. Building community strength to identify and solve problems is a powerful process that can lead to a healthier and more sustainable community. The 7 Generations manual was designed for environmental staff, community leaders and community planners in rural Alaska. The 7 Generations training is an interactive workshop that introduces participants to a community-based approach for developing local environmental plans. The training also introduces the basics of common environmental issues that can effect health such as drinking water, wastewater, solid waste, fuel storage, air, energy and climate, etc.
